      1915 and 1916. Oblong octavo measuring 13" x 9". String-tied album with decorative paper over boards containing 240 gelatin silver photographs, measuring between 2.25" x 1.75" and 4.75" x 3", most with captions in German; additionally there are a dozen or more postcards mixed in. Very good or better album with moderate wear at the edges and the spine with near fine photographs. A Bohemian German officer's album of his experiences in the First World War, beginning in February, 1915 with his training in the city of Pirna, then shifting to the Western Front, showing the devastation in and around Betheniville, Vaudricourt (Somme), and Auberive. In late 1916 he was transferred to the Russian Front in the Baltics, first to Riga, then on to Jelgava (Mitau) in Central Latvia, Tartu (Dorpat) in Estonia, and Liepaja (Libau) in Latvia.

One of these photos shows the building of a bridge across Elbe by German soldiers. Another photo shows them working at a switchboard as part of the early Signal Corps.

"Die auch im stärksten feindlichen Geschoßhagel nicht zu erschütternde Einigkeit der deutschen Frontkämpfer im Willen zum Siege ist das Geheimniß des deutschen Schlachterfolgs im Weltkriege. Sie rufen dem deutschen Volke von heute zu: ‚Sei einig und Du wirst frei sein'!" - Der große Heerführer des Ersten Weltkriegs (u. a. leitete er 1915 den Feldzug gegen Serbien, im Herbst 1916 den gegen Rumänien), schied nach dessen Ende aus dem Militärdienst; 1933 von den Nationalsozialisten zum preußischen Staatsrat ernannt und nach Hindenburgs Tod 1934 als letzter großer Feldherr des Ersten Weltkriegs für propagandistische Zwecke vereinnahmt, schenkte der Reichskanzler ihm 1935 die Domäne Brüssow und ernannte ihn zum Chef des 5.

Erste Ausgabe eines seiner Hauptwerke "Provides mathematical support of Lowell's prediction of the orbit and mass of a ninth planet. In 1905, he began both a mathematical and an observational search for a ninth planet in the Solar System based on unexplained perturbations in the orbit of Uranus. These explorations continued unsuccessfully until Lowell's death in 1916. Fourteen years later, after the Lowell Observatory renewed the search for planet X, a new planet. was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh, a young assistant at the observatory. Recognition of Lowell's role in this discovery was reflected in the presence of his initials in Pluto, the chosen name of the planet" (Hockey). - Der amerikanische Astronom Percival Lowell (1855-1916), Gründer des Lowell-Observatoriums, begann als Amateurforscher, wurde aber zu einem der bekanntesten Astronomen seiner Zeit. "More than any other astronomer of his generation, (he) had a profound influence on the general public. His thesis that the planet Mars was the abode of intelligent life continued to excite the public mind decades after his death. Lowell's name is also forever linked with Pluto; although he did not live to see that distant planet. there is no doubt that his inspiration advanced the date of its detection by many years" (DSB). - Stempel auf Titel.

        The Home of the Blizzard. Being the Story of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition, 1911-1914.

      London:: Heinemann,. 1915.. First UK edition. Hardcover. Very good. Douglas Mawson, a veteran of Ernest Shackleton's "Nimrod" expedition (1907- 09), returned to Australia and was selected to lead the Australasian Antarctic Expedition 1911-14. Mawson's tale is one of the great stories of survival of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration. Exploring with Ninnis & Mertz in 1912, Ninnis was lost down a crevasse. With him went the 6 fittest dogs & the most indispensable supplies. Mertz & Mawson improvised, feeding the dogs worn out mitts & raw-hide straps, but eventually the weakest dogs were killed to feed them all, until all the dogs were gone. The two men reserved the dog's livers as the meat easiest to chew, unaware that liver's toxins were slowly poisoning the men as they consumed it. Mertz became delirious and died. Mawson continued, the soles of his feet separating and his toes and fingers festering. Miraculously he found a depot of food, and arrived eventually at the main depot, to see the ship departing on the horizon. He wintered over with the 6 men who had remained to continue the search. On Dec. 24, 1913 their 2 year journey was finally over. 2 vols, 349 pp & 338 pp, 224 ills., 37 ills. in text, and 3 folding maps. Collated complete. The primary binding in navy buckram with the title & illustration stamped in gold, illustration in silver gilt of "Leaning on the Wind". Gilt bright, spine tips very lightly rubbed, silver gilt illustrations very slightly rubbed. Front board very slightly bowed. Top edge faintly pale blue, possibly Rosove 217.A1.b. Overall a very bright copy. Spence 774, Taurus 100, Conrad p20.

        THE RAINBOW

      1915. [a fine copy] London: Methuen & Co., (1915). Original dark blue-green cloth with spine decorated in gilt. First Edition of this novel of the Brangwen family, a book that has a remarkable history -- this being one of only 821 domestic copies that survived censorship.~THE RAINBOW was destined to provide the occasion for Lawrence's first real trouble with the problem of censorship, a difficulty which plagued him frequently afterwards. Methuen objected to parts of the book when it was being prepared for publication, and Lawrence agreed to alter or remove sentences and phrases, but he refused to delete whole paragraphs or pages. Court action was taken against THE RAINBOW about five weeks after its publication; a moving force in the prosecution was the National Purity League. The action was taken under Lord Campbell's Obscene Publications Act, which dated from 1857.[Roberts]~(The American edition, by Huebsch, faced similar difficulties -- even after the expurgation of such juicy passages as those appearing on pages 220, 300, 318, 425 and 446 of Methuen's edition.)~This first printing consisted of 2516 copies: 1250 were bound (like this) for the domestic market, 500 were designated for colonial distribution, and the remaining 766 sets of sheets were destroyed before ever being bound. Of the 1250 domestic copies, the police confiscated 245 copies, and Methuen subsequently recalled and destroyed another 184 copies -- leaving just 821 domestic copies that presumably survived.~This copy, without the four pages of ads that appear in some but not all copies, is in remarkably fine, bright condition.

        Large three-quarter length lithographic portrait by Johann Hohlenberg (1881-1960) of the noted Hungarian violinist and conductor playing the violin

      - 683 x 450 mm. Printed on light-weight paper laid down to board. Signed by the artist in pencil at lower left. With the names of both the artist (dated April 1915) and the violionist in the stone. Browned; margins slightly abraided with slight loss of paper. A striking image. Rare. "In 1911 [Telmányi] attracted international attention with his Berlin début, when he gave the first performance in Germany of Elgar's Concerto. Admired for the fluency and vitality of his playing, he also acquired a reputation as a conductor after his début in 1919 at Copenhagen. Telmányi married Anne Marie, younger daughter of Nielsen, in 1918, and eventually settled in Denmark. Telmányi's interest in problems of performing Baroque music led him to bring about the construction of a special violin bow. It was favourably received as a means of playing true chords across the strings softly as well as loudly, avoiding the usual arpeggio effect." Noël Goodwin in Grove Music Online.

        Alone 2000 Miles In A 12 Foot Boat" - Unpublished Typescript Account Illustrated with Original Pencil Drawings of his Sea Voyage in a small boat from Boston to Key West, Florida - 1915

      No Binding. Very Good. The collection includes the following: Two 56 page typescript copies with corrections, of Widing's account of his journey: "A Two Thousand Mile Midwinter Cruise in a 12 foot Boat." 18 original pencil sketches by Widing executed during his trip, includes views, natural history, persons encountered on the journey and events of the voyage. The quality of the sketches vary, but it is generally high (see sample images). Original pencil and water color "title-page" (see illustration above). 5 pieces of printed ephemera relating to Widing, including advertisements for public lectures which Widing gave describing his journey. 8 pages of mounted press clippings about Widing's journey, including English and Swedish language newspapers. 3 earlier pencil sketches and pages of miscellaneous notes and addresses. Typescript account of Ivar Widing's journey by sea from Boston to Key West, Florida in a 12 foot boat, named the Nutshell. The account is illustrated with original pencil drawings by Widing executed along the way. Accompanied by printed ephemera relating to Widing's lecture tours wherein he gave accounts of his journey to the public. The account is unpublished. Ivar Widing, a twenty seven year old, artist, illustrator and yachtsman decided in 1915 to undertake a solo 2000 mile journey from Boston to the Florida Keys and West Indies in a small boat. Widing was born in Stockholm Sweden and emigrated to America with his parents. Widing lived in Dorchester, Massachusetts and was a member of the Savin Hill Yacht Club. Widing and a friend had earlier planned to sail across the Atlantic in a small motor launch they had built in 1914, but were prevented by the outbreak of World War One. Widing resolved to undertake a solo journey by sea in a twelve foot long sailing tender, about five feet wide it drew barely two inches, kept steady by a small centerboard. The craft was specially fitted for the voyage, it was cat rigged with light bamboo spars that could be unshipped quickly, and the canvas could be used as a sea anchor in event of sudden bad weather. A watertight hood of canvas kept the craft dry during rough water. Widing carried a minimal amount of equipment, which included a camera and sketching materials. Several of Widing's pencil sketches are included. Widing left Dorchester on December 8 1915, traveled to Plymouth, the Cape Cod Canal to New York, via the Sound. From Sandy Hook he skirted the New Jersey and Delaware Coasts to Chesapeake Bay. Then he took the inside route, through the Dismal Swamp Canal to the sounds of Carolina, avoiding the run around Hatteras. He reached Key West on March 31, 1916.

        Manuscrit autographe inédit] "La rime"

      - 44 pp. in-4 ou in-8, souvent découpées, montées sur papier et annotées. Impressionnant exemple du travail à quatre mains d'Edouard Pichon avec son oncle Jacques Damourette. Il s'agit d'un "rapport préliminaire" de Pichon datant de 1915, remis en forme et annoté vers 1940-1943 par son oncle Jacques Damourette. "Le plan de l'EGLF [Essai de Grammaire de la langue française] comprenait une partie sur l'utilisation artistique de la langue française, partie qui, à la suite du développement des travaux, n'a pas été exécutée. L'article sur la rime que l'on va lire est un rapport préliminaire écrit par Pichon en vue de cette partie de l'ouvrage. Il m'a paru intéressant de le mettre sous les yeux du lecteur, sans changer le texte de Pichon, tout en faisant observer que ce rapport est une oeuvre de jeunesse (il a été écrit aux armées le 1er janvier 1915, l'auteur avait donc 24 ans). C'est ce qui explique l'absolutisme de certaines idées." Il semble que Damourette soit mort sans avoir pu totalement finir le travail de mise en forme. A notre connaissance cet article est inédit. Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
